Why is maintaining proper tire pressure important?

Proper tire inflation helps prevent accelerated wear that leads to premature tire replacement and is also important to safety.

Tires that are driven under-inflated generate excessively high heat levels that can weaken the tire to the point of failure.

At high speed, a rapidly deflating tire can cause loss of vehicle control.

An over-inflated tire will result in harsh ride quality and will cause uneven tire wear.
